Winners of the 2011 Montreal-based « Jazz en Rafale » competition, Trio Jérôme Beaulieu will delight audiences with their modern, pop-influenced jazz. Trying to bring forth a rythmic and accessible approach to jazz, the trio's music goes through a wide variety of genres, using audio sampling and integrating covers of popular songs to the growing repertoire of their pianists' compositions.

Vincent Gagnon is one of the most sought-after pianists on the Quebec jazz scene. Described by CBC’s Stanley Péan as “.... the revelation of the Festival de Jazz de Québec 2009,” Gagnon has been active for the last 10 years.

Since moving to Montreal in 1984, pianist and composer Yves Léveillé has been increasingly called upon to perform his music at the national and international level. In the 90s, he decided to put together his own jazz ensemble dedicated to interpreting his compositions. This creative endeavour led to a collaboration with the jazz label Effendi, with whom he has made four albums: Signal Commun (FND001) 1999, Zone Indigène (FND 023) 2001, Quantique (FND038) 2003 and SOHO (FND070) 2006.
